Tyronne Green was raised in northern Florida, played his college football at Auburn and has spent his first three NFL seasons in San Diego.

The Chargers are one of the toughest teams to project in the first round, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.

Hit snooze on that alarm clock one more time San Diego, because if things play out like they have in our mock draft, this is pretty much a dream scenario for the Bolts. South Carolina’s Melvin Ingram really shouldn’t be available here at the 18th selection.

San Diego, California – Auditions for the 2012 Charger Girls professional dance team begin Sunday, April 15 at the University of San Diego’s Jenny Craig Pavilion.  Check-in and registration begins promptly at 9 a.m., followed by a preliminary dance audition at 10 a.m.
